According to Bungie Designer Evan Nikolich, Destiny Alpha had even less than 10% of the game's content, so there's a lot to discover yet.
The size of the game world was very impressive for it being just an Alpha.
Personally I would have liked it to be bigger, but then again I'm used to MMOs.
well I'm sure when we get to the Beta stage we will get a better sense of the overall size.
If this is just 10% of the overall size I'm impressed. I'm looking forward to seeing the final release of this thing, it's going to be awesome!
I did not get a chance to play the alpha myself but I did watch a lot of live streaming. I found the world size given in the alpha to be okay however if it was close to 10% I think that would make the overall world pretty small. Again didnt have to travel the world myself but it just seems (from what i have seen) that if it was 10x larger it would still feel a little small to me.
It's not an MMO
Actually they ae finished with the game. This was just a tease. And trust me graphically it wont be better than the Alpha or beta. This is the full game but just a small tease of what the game is about. Very bad voice acting and VERY good gameplay.
Peter Dinklage's voice just doesn't seem right for the game.
"Very bad voice acting " Oh man, tell me about it, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion from Game Of Thrones) sounds bored. I know he's supposed to sound non-emotional because he's just an AI, but it doesn't sound like an AI, it just sounds like a bored voice actor, lol. They should give him a robotic sounding filter or something, so then at least he will actually sound like an AI. As for the multiplayer announcer....the WORST i have EVER heard. I really hope it's just a placeholder. How can you go from "SLAYYYYERRR", to a non-badass, and totally bored sounding Englishman? Lmao.
I am very excited for the other planets!
What does the size of the game world have to do with Alpha??? It's not even in Alpha stage. It's just a marketing term now.
no it wasn't an Alpha - not with a Beta coming next month and the retail version in the beginning of September. I guess they couldn't call it the Beta since that will be in July. I guess they could have just called it a preview and been done with it, but oh well. I was merely commenting that the open exploration was fairly large, and if that is only representative of approx 10% of the overall world size, then we have a lot of area to go exploring in.
Nice to hear! I'm really looking forward to the game, whenever it comes on PC.
So for everyone that said "zomg, its so unimpressive and boring" welcome to the world of an alpha. Its something to be said if less than 10% of a game is better than 50% of the full shooters available right now.
People also have to understand this game follows an MMORPG formula for it's missions. So to truly have fun with it and for it not to be "boring" you need to play with friends. That's what the game is about. And it's a feeling you can only get by trying it out for yourself. I've played Monster Hunter for years and let me tell you. The feeling you get when playing with friends CANNOT be felt through a Youtube video.
Personally cannot wait to get this on PS4!
i think this is all confirm a pc version later after the release of the game on consoles
PC won't see this game any time soon
I bet it will release on PC some time during 2015. Perhaps Q3/Q4, but not any later than that.
I think PC should have gotten this game instead of PS3 and 360. But most people still own the old consoles instead of the current gen. They'll probably make the most money from the old gen sales. Activision gotta profit after that 500 million dollar budget
Destiny from one side and The Witcher 3 on the other. I'm in the middle and my social life lost forever. I was very skeptical about Destiny. Some things do not convince me fully, but Alpha-Test has impressed me a lot.
Well, you have five months and a half to enjoy Destiny before The Witcher 3 releases!
I want PC!
Master Race playing second string to the console master and commanders. We will think about letting this game on pc. Here, have some out of date bread, and a chunk of cheese. Scrape that stuff of it.
Sorta like Console people STILL begging for the release of Planetside 2, War Thunder, Loadout, etc etc. Games I've been bored of for a long long time already. I don't think I've seen an article yet about Rust, Dayz, Star Citizen, Elite, The Forest, +100 other PC games that isn't full of console beggers hoping PC will drop some of it's scaps for you starving console kids. It's funny they keep pushing back release dates of new games on consoles to sucker you guys into buying remaster after remaster of games that you just paid full price for a year ago.
Console beggars? Look who is talking... Console players will enjoy Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Destiny, Metal Gear Solid V and great exclusives like Bloodborne, The Order:1886, Zelda, Suoer Smash Bros, Little Big Planet 3, Xenoblade, and tons of games. Pc fanboys are the worst, by far. Pc means petitions and complaint.
It'll only take you about $1200 and years of waiting to play those games you listed Light. By the time those games come around I'll have a whole new list. I can play every game I listed TODAY. Oh and word of advice, "great exclusives"and "The Order:1886" should never be used in the same sentence. That game is a walking QTE. "Pc means petitions" Here's a fun game, go type in "console petitions" in google :) You guys just love begging and making petitions don't you.
EVERYONE CALM THE HECK DOWN. All this "my platform is better than yours" and blah blah blah. Such immaturity. Some people have too much emotional connection to their platform of choice.
900p 30 fps "master race" HD remake "master race" no mods "master race" 70$ per game "master race" hahah good one.
Bodes well. I got a lot of hours out of that 'less than 10%' this weekend.
I hope it will be available for PC looking forward ...
Will wait for a PC version
I'm saying never for now on PC. It's up to Bungie to change my mind to maybe. It says a lot when they decided to put the effort into making the old gen console versions which won't last another 2-3 years never mind 10 years which is Bungies timescale for Destiny and not the PC version. But it's their money to waste on old consoles.
It's a pity they had to consider old consoles at all, the game would have been much better if released only on PC/PS4/Xbox One.
when is Pc version out
I'm impressed this was even an alpha. Smooth as hell.
Probably wasn't an alpha just a small amount of the game polished up to give people a preview and test the network. Open alpha/betas= demos, a publisher is not going to allow an alpha for a $500M game to be played by anyone that is a bug ridden and broken mess.
Will take a look on PC when its $10 I can wait.
"Never say never", no just say "Sorry PC gamers you are not important enough to get the game the same time as everyone else".
I really wished this game would come out on pc just because I prefer using a mouse and keayboard. But seriously tje alpha was awesome, it got me hooked in the first 10 minutes of gameplay. I just find it a little too much pricey (70$) for my taste so ill wait a bit before buying the game.
I want it on PC, let's hope it comes out soon
MY guess is we wont get a PC release window from them until after the game has been released for consoles. Don't want to have anyone holding off until they've had a chance to buy it. ;)
I'm probably in the minority here, but if the level cap was only 8 and the other planets weren't even there yet, doesn't 10% seem high? It would have been more impressive to say we only touched about <5%. Or just say like 1%.
